    A few seasoned trial-watchers I just checked in with think the jury will be hung.
    I believe this jury will find SM guilty as I would had I been sitting with them seeing and hearing same evidence.

    Since KT has a friend on the jury, it wouldn't surprise me if it is hung.

    This person is a concern, but the other juror's know who they are, so maybe that won't be an issue.

    I'm not worried about this person, especially after hearing the judge speak about the directed verdict, and he's a friend of the Moorer family.

    Don't you think the person on the jury and the way the judge speaking about the directed verdict are apples and oranges? The judge has to follow the law and if he doesn't the case could be reversed. The friend on the other hand does not have those concerns, providing he does not violate the rules of a juror. If he is a hold out, there are no consequences for him.

    Yes, that is why I voted hung jury in the poll. Let's hope and pray though that the friend really can be impartial like he said he could be.

    I would have to vote Guilty too if I was there. Of Kidnapping and that's the key for me. I don't think I could have said guilty of murder at all. Not enough evidence to prove who killed her. But kidnapping yes and here is why. .

    -Based on reasonable common sense she was going to meet SM and SM only. Based on his calls to her and her crying to Bri about it.
    -SM initiated the call to her and it was to meet up. She then disappears.
    -No other common sense explanation for her missing
    -Then his/her actions afterwards put icing on the cake. Actions of a guilty party.

    So the bottom line is common sense is telling me he took her and did something with her. OR in collusion with her but he was the initiator so he is guilty too. Key thing for me = guilty of kidnapping.

    I am almost glad the murder charge was dropped. It made it easier since murder would have been a lot tougher for me to convict him of that. I do think they did that too but it would have been a tougher pill to swallow with the case they put on.
